Singapore – Osaka-based architect Teruhiro Yanagihara has designed a salon for Japanese beauty and hairdressing chain LIM (Less is More).
The KIZUKI salon is housed inside Singapore’s historic Raffles hotel, and has been designed in stark contrast to its colonial-style surroundings. The interior is dominated by a large glacier-like structure with bright lime-green highlights, while minimal white space and clean graphic lines feature throughout.
Areas of the salon can also be adapted for different uses. Mirrored panels in the main room can be moved to accommodate events or concerts, and a timbered area near reception is to be used as a gallery space for local artists.
Well-designed, minimal interiors are further explored in our Super Minimal Inspire.
